Pinkalicious' is given a bath, but she still is pink. She is taken to the doctors, and is diagnosed with 'Pinktitis'. Her prescribed medicine is to eat as much green stuff as she can, to turn back to her normal color. But Pinkalicious is happy being pink. Even after being swarmed by bugs because she looks like a flower, she still likes being pink. She likes being pink so much she eats one more cupcake. However, she wakes up to find she is no longer Pink but Ruby Red. Pinkalicious does not like this at all.

Right away she starts to eat anything in the fridge that is green. Her normal complexion soon returns. Pinkalicious finds that she loves her complexion, just as she is. More importantly, she likes who she is just the way she is.

Victoria & Elizabeth Kanns' book is not only beautiful to look at, with many pages full of 'pinkness', her message is simple: love yourself for who and how you are. While this book is centered around a girl, and is aimed for girls, such a message can be understood by many.

I give this book a 'poor' rating for several reasons... 1. The way the mother talks to the daughter...'you get what you get and you won't be upset', and then the daughter sticks out her tonge at her monther. 2. The 1st appearance of the father and accompanying illustration are of him ordering her to bed with a pointed finger. 3. The Dr. prescribes 'green vegetables', and text says 'yuck!'. Later negative comments describe vegetables as...'choke on an artichoke, gag on a grape, and burp up a brussle sprout', and more. 4. Also not crazy about the sneaking out of bed, and building a tower to climb to the top of the refridgerator. Why expose my 2 children to these things when there are so many good books out there showing good communication between parents and children, and advocating healthy eating?

    This could have been a cute book. But, as other reviews have explained, it has lots of content that id not good for small children to hear/see. When my daughter and I read it, we talk about how Pinkalicious' behavior is NOT nice and that she shouldn't eat that many cupcakes anyway. We use all the bad stuff in the book as an opportunity to teach how it is wrong. I would NOT recommend this book to others.

    The only "good" book from the series...

    My daughter likes this book very much because she loves pink, but I agree with many other reviews that are some things at this book that I had to adapt because it is not what I teach my kid... when she had to eat vegetables to dont be pink anymore, we made as she likes to eat them... as my daughter never learned that vegetables does not taste good... the idea was good, but as a book, I would hope the author would take out the children steriotypes (not liking vegetables) and teach them that vegetables are good... isn't why we buy books? to teach them GOOD lessons?

    Not as terrible as many reviews say, but I'd point out that the book merely reflects a certain reality with (many but not all) kids aged 3-6.
    Having said that, I don't think it's very well done and wouldn't recommend it.
    If you're looking for something similar, I'd recommend Diego Dilemma in the Cookie Conundrum instead.
